Vpopolam - Gryaznyj albom


Published May 8, 2012


Are you ready to rock? I hope you are because today I’m excited to release the powerful debut EP, “Gryaznyj albom”/“The Dirty Album”, by the Russian band Vpopolam. They call their sound “anti-glamorous chanson-core”, a blend of funk, rock & grooves. At times the sound is reminiscent of Red Hot Chili Peppers and at other times, the sound’s hard to pin down. There’s one thing about it that’s very easy to pin down… these guys know how to make absolutely infectious music. I forewarn you, get ready to add “Gryaznyj albom” to heavy rotation!

With this release, I’m fulfilling one of the goals that I set for blocSonic when I first committed to releasing original music. I never envisioned blocSonic as only a "hip-hop" label or even a strictly English language label; I’ve long wanted to release music of many genres regardless of where the artists hale from and what language they perform in. I feel that the American mainstream goes out of its way to restrict the majority of it’s music to English language acts which helps mold American mainstream music listeners into a rather narrow-minded audience. While listeners in the rest of the world somehow manage to enjoy music with lyrics they don’t understand, Americans continue to live in their bubble, only listening to Jay-Z, Rihanna, Coldplay and whatever other English act is being spoon-fed to them. At least that’s the way it’s long been and how it would continue if the mainstream music industry had its way. Though, the internet exists and some of us are adventurous listeners and we explore. Good music is good music, regardless of where it was created. If you’re visiting blocSonic to listen to new music, then I know you are an adventurous listener. Go ahead, download now. Thanks again for listening.

Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!

Subject: Gryaznyj album by Vpopolam
I tried this and it reminded me of the type of west coast Alt Rock that was big in American Pop culture when No Doubt was big in the 1990's. Though I can't understand the lyrics I can see giving this album a reasonable for stars.

Didn't expect see compatriots on blocSonic and especially playing fervent funk in the native language.
